As mentioned, when you create a new task, you can set its properties (see “Creating subtasks and assigning executants”). You can access task properties tab at the right side of Cerebro at any time. This tab can also be accessed by selecting View/properties of the task from context menu.
There are buttons switches that determine which task parameters are visible and can be customizable in the window at the top of the window:
In the upper part of the panel there is a set of buttons that allows you to:
set a list of parameters and their order of display on the panel;
block the task forum for adding comments.
The settings provide the opportunity to:
select type of data representation;
select list of parameters that the panel should contain;
set sequence of displaying parameters on the panel by moving them in the list using drag-and-drop.
Name – task name;
Status – task status. In Navigator window and other lists, tasks are represented this way:
current task status is shown for tasks of lowest level in their “status” column, highlighted by color that is set in status properties;
for container tasks in case its subtasks have different statuses, “status” column shows colored linear diagram, where length of a certain color bar is proportional to amount of corresponding subtask statuses.If you hover your mouse cursor over diagram in “status” column in Navigator or any other list, a pop-up with detailed descriptions on subtask statuses will show).
Priority - importance of the task.
Assigned – List of assigned task executors.
Plan – group of elements designed to set the planned time of the task, the start/end date of the execution. This group has Pin button that allows you to set planned hours for the task (ON). Fixed parameters do not change when adjusting the timing characteristics of related tasks.
Hashtags – list of words given by users as an additional attribute for quick task search (see section “Hashtags”).
Links – a list of links to other tasks. You can set time dependencies (links) between the start of one task and the end of another (for more details, see Gantt chart section).
Subscribed – list of users subscribed to the task. who are not executors, but monitor the status of the task.
References – includes:
inserted into the selected task as a link/reference (for more details, see the Tasks references section);
tasks in which the selected task has been inserted as a reference.
Budget – it is used to plan expenses and to control the budget for the project (“Budgeting”).
Progress – group of elements for manually setting the progress of the task. They can be defined in 3 ways:
progress is off by the lock button (to the left of the slider), with its value calculated by the system based on the progress of subtasks;
progress is on and is in the range of 1 to 99;
the task is marked as completed, the progress is considered equal to 100.
Stats – contains information about the date of creation and last modification of the task, indicating the users who performed these actions.
Checklist – list of items specified by users as an additional attribute for completing tasks. Checklist items can be displayed as columns in My Space, used in the selection criteria for tasks in My Space and Search.
Tags – list of custom tags. If you have several user tags in your universe, you can adjust their values for the chosen task (see section “Task tags”).
It is possible to edit the property values of several tasks at the same time. To do this, select the tasks that need to be changed and specify the value of the properties on the panel.
